Straight Liner Metal Design Stamp, 19mm (.75")
- Design measures: 19mm (.75") x .54mm (.02") (Width is sometimes up to 1mm depending on how they have been handground).
- Made from a 19mm x 4.75mm " rectangle piece of tool steel.
- Since these stamps have long shanks, you may need to strike them twice, once on either end.
- This tool is handmade.
Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

It works great for "thin line" pieces, as well as anything you need a long line for!
this is awesome! I love it as a regular line, a bar between words, or to make stick figures!
